Hi guys. I need some recommendations :P

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So yeah, I just joined. So uhhh... Hi?

 

Yeah anyway, I kinda need recommendations on buying headphones. The most expensive pair I have ever owned were the Sony-MDR ZX300, so you can pretty much guess that I'm a total amateur and I don't know if I'm an actual audiophile or not. So...

After hours of searching, asking, looking at prices, comparisons, revies etc. I have found some headphones that kind of fit what I need. I'm looking for closed back headphones, with some proper noise isolation (I don't really want people to listen to what I'm listening, or I'll be #1 on the local weirdo list), some punch on the bass (I mean the bass being there, being able to feel it, with as much clarity and tightness as possible, without overwhelming the rest of the track and blending in with the mids, something I went through with a lot of cheap headphones), strong, clear mids and, while the highs don't matter too much to me, I wouldn't want them gone either, and not sounding bad.

So, those headphones are:
 

- Audio Technica ATH-M50
- Beyerdynamic DT-770 80 Ohm
- Denon AH-D1001 & AH-D1000
- SONY MDR-XB500 (Not availble anymore though :'( and from trying it in a store it needs heavy EQing)

My budget is 50 to 170 Euros, so about 70 to 200$ and they will mostly be for portable use (Cell & MP3) and home use on my desktop (also getting a sound card soon)

 

Feel free to recommend any headphone or point out wich one of the above fits my needs. Thanks in advance guys

Oh also, the music I listen to: 
Rock, Hard Rock, Alt Rock, Metal (Death,Black,Melodeath,Nu), Classic (real) dubstep (So I need SUB Bass not UPPER bass),D&B, Hardstyle and House (Deep, Progressive, Electro)

Again, thanks guys :)

The DT770 Pro 80-Ohm might be a little hard to drive (well) from a portable audio player.

Thomann (in Europe) has a lot of brands and good prices.

I'd buy it but it's not available to any of my national sites and I have no access to credit/debit card or Paypal
